Weird, Strange, and Hilarious Things For Sale on eBay
Everyone's heard stories about people selling weird stuff on eBay. Potato chips shaped like Jesus, celebrity underwear, a snowball. Once I saw on the news someone trying to sell his vote in the election on eBay. (He was charged with a felony for voter fraud.) Some of the auctions are meant to be jokes, and some are legitimate ones that just happen to be selling really weird things.
There's a category on eBay called Weird Stuff, and that's where I looked to find the current list. The larger category is Everything Else, and Weird Stuff is below that. The three subcategories within Weird Stuff are Slightly Unusual, Really Weird, and Totally Bizarre. Most of the items are either sexual in nature (whips, handcuffs, etc.) or offensive to one or more of the senses (fake dog doo, fart simulators). But if you get through the stupid stuff that belong in other categories, there are some real gems. Well, weird gems anyway. Like gems that have been buried under dog doo.

He goes on to list what's on each CD. Some of the topics, he claims, include UFOs, time travel, crop circles, Mars & the moon, free energy, weather control, Greenhouse Conspiracy, origins of oil, fake doctors, aliens, hidden technology, fake religions, Bigfoot, and cattle mutilations.

Donkey Cigarette Dispenser: Cool...yet gross.

NEW retro MERMAID TATTOO Tampon Personal Case
Buy It Now: $21.95
As the description says, this is a case that you can discreetly carry your tampons in. It has a mermaid decoration, which is kind of oxymoronic, because, well, mermaids don't quite have the equipment to use tampons. The listing, as a selling point, claims that it holds three regular tampons or two super.
Unusually Weird Jar of Pickles TOTALLY UNEDIBLE 3D art
